Deal or No Deal? Tackle Box's Lobster Roll

Lobster Roll, $19

The sign outside of the Tackle Box, a casual dining spot located in the heart of Georgetown's shopping district, says they have "World Famous Lobster Rolls." But at nearly $20 a pop is this meal a deal or no deal?

Here are some details to help you decide:

Menu Item: Lobster Roll

Price: $19

Restaurant: Tackle Box

Cuisine: New England Style American Fare & Seafood

Neighborhood: Georgetown/M Street

What the menu says you'll get: "Lobster Roll" (That's it - no description)

What I actually got: a crisp and lightly buttered French roll (about the size of a 6-inch Subway sandwich) stuffed with chunks of lobster meat atop a basket of fries.

While my taste buds were certainly satisfied, I couldn't help but wonder if my pocket book had taken an unnecessary hit in the name of those glorified critters that crawl on the bottom of the ocean so commonly referred to as, "a delicacy."

What's your opinion: Is this lobster roll a deal or no deal? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
